I finished another little patch -- so I think these are going to be little art quilts eventually.
I have been using pearl cotton #5 flosses, because I love just knotting them around a floss holder (either a metal ring, or I also have actual floss holders, a lamb and a peacock) and by cutting the skein in half, all I have to do is pull out a strand and it is ready to go, it's the perfect length and there's no separating to do.
|This basket-o-happiness goes all over the house with me.|
It was just a few basic stitches: straight stitches, French knots, satin stitches, and lazy daisy flower loops. But then it turned into its own little tapestry.
